Versatile Blogger Award

Posted in award, meme | 4 Comments
Over the 4th of July weekend, Danica Avet was nice enough to award my blog with this lovely badge. 🙂  I’d meant to get it up sooner, but time being what it is, it had slipped my mind. So here we go. Now, here are the rules: 1. Thank those who loved me enough to bestow this gift. 2. Share seven things about myself. 3. Bestow this honor onto 15 newly discovered or followed bloggers–in no particular order–who are fantastic in some way. 4. Drop by and let my fifteen new friends know I love them. I think I’m honestly running out of things to talk about myself, but here goes: 1. I’ve been a licensed NAUI SCUBA diver since I was 15. Of course, I haven’t actually been diving in a while, but it’s still a nice thing to have.  2. I never turn off Dirty Dancing if I… Read more

Bacon Bribery

This is so full of win I can hardly speak. (Mostly because I’m laughing so damn hard.) Revenge never tasted so sweet, I suppose. Thanks, Adri – if I have an extra ARC, it’s yours. 🙂 And btw, Adri also made this: I suspect I’ll be handing out quite a few of them – seeing as I owe many people a very great deal. (I’ll leave that to another post with some well-thought out reasons, however.)… Read more

Grumpy Ass Wombat Award

Posted in award, goofy, random | 11 Comments
Done for Adri aka @SmoulderingSea. AKA The Grumpy Wombat. I am awarding it to him for never losing his awesome sense of cuteness and win, even when you poke him with a pointy stick. So pass it along to anyone when a lack of sleep devolves their basic communication skills into animalistic grunting. (In the hopes of cheering them up, of course.) Tiny version below.… Read more

Honest Scrap Award

Posted in award | 10 Comments
I picked up another blog award the other day, courtesy of Danielle. 🙂 And here are the acceptance rules: 1. Brag about the award. And so I have. 🙂 2. Include the name of the blogger who gave you the award and link back to that blogger. 3. Choose a selection of blogs that you find brilliant in honest content. 4. Show their names and links and leave a comment informing them that they were prized with this award. 5. List at least ten honest things about yourself. ___________ So with that in mind, here’s 10 honest (and kinda random and rambling) things about me. 1) I never went to any of my high school proms. Of course, no one asked me either, and I was too chickenshit to go alone. I seem to remember just going for a walk on the beach that weekend instead. And I bought a parakeet, too. 2)… Read more

Creative Writer Blog Award

Posted in award, no sleep 'til brooklyn | 3 Comments
Thanks to Nicole for giving me this latest blog award. 🙂 I know I need to send this out to others, but seeing as I’m rather strapped for time just now (and really? all I want to do is faceplant into a pillow), that will have to wait for a little bit. In the meantime, does anyone know how to stretch a weekend into five or six days? Please?… Read more
